We have been getting ready for a weekend of catering parties and Lee has been mass producing our lamb koftas.  These will be available to buy in the butchery using local lamb, but if you would like to make them yourself, the recipe is very simple and the results are delicious.

Lamb Kofta Recipe 

Feeds 4

500g/17½oz lean minced lamb
3 tsp paprika
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp ground cumin
1 clove garlic, peeled, chopped
½ chilli, finely chopped
pinch cayenne pepper
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Place all of the kebab ingredients together in a bowl and mix together with your hands until the meat sticks together.
With damp hands, take a handful of the kebab mixture and shape into a long sausage shape around a skewer. Repeat with the remaining kebab mixture, using a new skewer each time (or fit two kebabs onto each skewer)
